Alexi Ogando, starter or reliever? If you are a fan of the Texas Rangers, you have been hearing this debate wage on for a number of seasons. This debate seems to have split the fan base down the middle much like the “trade or keep Jurickson Profar” battle. It has been beaten to death over and over again about what the Rangers should do with the hard throwing right hander, but...
ARLINGTON, Texas Lance Berkman has been around baseball long enough to now that he would get another big hit sooner or later.
It was still sweet for him to actually get one though.
Berkman's two-run homer Monday broke a 3-3 tie with Cleveland Monday night and helped spark the Rangers to a 6-3 win to open an 11-game homestand. The club has now won consecutive games for the...
ARLINGTON, Texas David Murphy is far from the only Ranger struggling at the plate these days, but at least he has contributed with his arm.
For the second game in a row, Murphy threw out a base runner from left field.
On Tuesday, he pegged Cleveland's Carlos Santana trying to stretch a single into a double.
Wednesday, it was the speedy Michael Bourn who tested Murphy'...
Yu Darvish is going through a drought unlike any he's been through with the Texas Rangers.
The ace from Japan has made four consecutive starts without a victory for his first time in the majors.
Since last winning May 16, Darvish lost a 1-0 game and has had three consecutive no-decisions. The major league strikeout leader has a 2.28 ERA over that stretch, when the Rangers scored...
Indians pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez worked hard last night for the 5 innings he pitched. The Tribe was looking to get another win in Texas to end their 9 game road trip from hell with a 2-7 record. It looked like the Indians weren’t going to win any games on this 9 game road trip that started in New York. The Indians fans watched as Jimenez worked his trail off in Texas last night....
Around the Farm takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Indians prospects throughout the system. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday’s game.
***Special Note: Due to a monsoon that apparently crossed the nation, the only game played tonight was by the Columbus affiliate.

A busted pipe under the infield at Rangers Ballpark has created a sinkhole right behind the pitcher's mound.
On-field batting practice was canceled for both the Texas Rangers and Cleveland Indians while workers tried to fix the problem 2 1/2 hours before Tuesday night's scheduled game.
Rangers officials expect the problem to be fixed in time to play the game.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- The Texas Rangers have signed both of their first-round picks from last week's amateur draft.

Texas Rangers starter Yu Darvish can add “bobblehead mania” to his already impressive major-league resume. On Tuesday night the Texas Rangers ran a promotion for a Yu Darvish “K-Counter” bobblehead that was to be given away to the first 20,000 fans that arrived at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.Fans lined up for hours before the Rangers opened the ballpark in hopes...
The month of June continues to be a painful one for the Clippers who are now 32-34 after another losing week which saw the team go 2-4 in two series against Toledo and Gwinnett. The starting pitching has been throwing better as of late but if Columbus expects to contend for a playoff spot, the rotation will have to delve deeper into games to prevent late-season exhaustion in the...
I think it’s high time RW quit bull-cooking around with his two center fielders regarding his vague, fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants approach to playing time for Craig Gentry and Leonys Martin. It’s high time Washington made up his mind as to which of his two outfielders brings more to the table talent and effort wise and simply give THAT player the bulk of the starts in center...
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Jason Kipnis had a home run among his three hits and the Cleveland Indians got a series-clinching 5-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.
A night after ending an eight-game losing streak, and a span of 12 losses in a row away from home, the Indians made it consecutive victories to clinch their first road series in a month. They had gone 0-4...
